Mr. Juan Olegario Rodriguez
I started officially teaching in Cleveland I. S. D. with the opportunity to teach my first two years teaching 5th grade Bilingual students. It felt great helping struggling students, however, my passion was and still is in the Visual Arts and Spanish. I went on to teach in the Rio Grade Valley at W. A. Todd Ninth Grade Campus in Donna, Texas. I taught there for 3 years, then IDEA Academy Charter Schools where I taught 2 years Art and Spanish. On the second year of teaching at the charter school I reallized that I was not serving my students as effectively as I would like to. My wife and I decided to move to San Antonio and I applied in NEISD. An opportunity came up, the vacancy was to work with Dr. MaryJo McLaughlin and the Academy of Creative Education. My fit was perfect with my certifications in both Art and Spanish. I am working on my 15th year at ACE teaching Visual Arts and Spanish as a world language to sophomores, juniors, and seniors, it is a pleasure to serve these students and our community.
